Yomassage is a fusion of relaxing and supported yoga poses, hands on massage therapy, and mindfulness that was created by Tiffany Ryan and Katherine Parker in Portland, OR. Students hold each pose for 5-10 minutes while a massage therapist performs manual massage on different parts of the body. Classes can range from 1-10 people and last for 60-120 minutes.
Yomassage classes are a completely luxurious experience that include a warm room with dim lighting, lots of yoga props for ample support and comfort, and often include essential oils, warm towels, hot stones, eye pillows, and more. No yoga experience is required to take a Yomassage class.
Yomassage is a method that allows therapeutic touch to be more affordable and allows massage therapists to make more money in less time.
